I love the sound from the 70's great bands like Earth Wind And Fire, Heart,
The Isley Brothers, Boston, Al Green the Eagles, ELP, Yes, Issac Hayes!

And some people like to say consoles are dead! I cant ever ever see them not being in mass use, comparitive to the overall much larger home recordist market of today. And AMEN for that, beautiful beasts in this thread should live forever.

AGREED . I hope it all swings back to caring about sound over caring about convenience.
